A good idea

I thought everyone had seen this idea but a recent trip seems to tell me otherwise.
So here’s what I saw at my local library . . .
They had a great stage constructed in the open area in the centre of the library. (My local library is Toronto Public.)
Anyway, the stage is programmed with a bunch a great events – author readings, poets, etc.
It’s dynamic much of the time but otherwise the stage runs the risk of being a dead space. What did they do?
They ran a cable feed of Book TV through the PC projector. People would come in all day and watch it – over lunch, coffee breaks, or just anytime. The space went from dead to read!
What a great idea!
Anyway, do you have a wall? Do you have a few chairs? Do you have a room or space that’s underultilized?
How about Book TV? Talk about a nice alignment with our core services. I suppose History TV could work too.
